Thanks for the reply Max. I did check permissions and didn't see anything that was incorrect as compared to the working 1.6.2

I am unable to access the Pictures directory over ethernet. I can see the share but when I click on it I get a message it cannot be found.

I cannot find that file anywhere inside the Home folder.

I can find an indi directory at path usr/share/indi with the other xml files but no file with EAF in the name.

What am I missing?

Thanks Wouter. I will try deleting the file. I did try removing the filter wheel from the profile, shutdown INDI and restart KStars, hoping it was something related to initial detection.

Steve Crossman created a new topic ' ZWO 7 position filter' in the forum. 2 years ago

I recently updated from a 5 slot ZWO filter wheel to the 7 slot filter wheel.  

Unfortunately, I am unable to assign a label for filters #6 and #7, as there are no edit fields displayed to enter themt.  It properly detects the FW as a 7 position FW and I am able to select the unnamed filters.

 



Additionally, these filter positions cannot be changed in the capture tab.  It displays the 7 filter position, you can enter the labels for #6 and 7 positions, but they will not save.

Thank you for the info. I have tried the above. This SM 1.5.5 image + restore my backup has always worked. I didn't update the software and out of the blue it started acting weird during guiding, as if it wasn't seeing the guide pulses. Guide history looked line a sine wave pattern.

Jasem has replied to my email very promptly and I have updated to the lasted nightly build from a fresh 1.5.7 image. No restore profile. Created a blank profile and testing the simulators. Seems you have to find something first before guiding calibration will work with the Simulator. It has the same problem of not finishing guide calibration and displaying the message that started this thread.

Clear skies are now a week away... thanks again for taking the time to reply, I appreciate it.

Now I find that the simulator won't calibrate the guiding as well.

It is version 3.4 driver

Yes, Celestron AVX

I will check on the driver version, however this version of SM 1.5.5 has worked fine for months with no changes.  The only thing I did different was tried to connect using the Mac Kstars version.

Do you have a link for the latest version to install?  I made another SD boot for 1.5.5 fresh install and will install it there.

thanks for your help!

I am getting the same error but haven't updated the software past 1.5.5   
This build has been working great for quite some time and suddenly I am unable to calibrate guiding and get the error. 

GUIDE_RA error: 'mount or backlash problems

GOTO functionality works fine after a plate-solve.  Guiding from a saved backup works fine.   Here is a portion of the log which shows the final error.  Something is amiss in the mount itself as the same error occurs on a fresh SM 1.5.5 installation.

I am not sure where to look next and my problem isn't from updating to a more recent build.

Thanks IA for any suggestions
